It was announced at the beginning of April that, following a Premier League meeting, the competition would be suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic (BBC).

This followed weeks of suspensions as the UK went into a nationwide lockdown, confining the public to their homes for the vast majority of each day.

People, including Spurs players and staff, are only allowed to leave their homes for essential travel, shopping, and one form of exercise each day.

Even if they do choose to exercise outside, people must refrain from coming into close proximity with people from other households. This is why Mourinho received such backlash from his outdoor training session with Tanguy Ndombele this month (Guardian).

However, the Evening Standard have now revealed that Mourinho has gone to some lengths to ensure that he can still work with three core members of Spurs staff.

The Special One has rented a house in North London with Nuno Santos, the goalkeeping coach, Ricardo Formosinho, the tactical analyst, and Carlos Lalin, the head of first-team performance.

Mourinho is also said to be in daily contact with his other key members of staff, including assistant manager, Joao Sacramento.

  1. The media and ex to are all watching every move made by Jose. He need to stamp his Authority on the field of play. Senior players are ready to die for Jose, even the goalkeeper. I think the best solution to build the new Spurs team is to release some key senior players. Rather start a new strong team without players who cannot separate their friendship with Pochettino and their main job. Bishop in South Africa
